The Koepoort is a city gate in Enkhuizen. For centuries the gate was the western gateway to the city of Enkhuizen and is part of the city's fortifications. The slight curve in the gate opening has been deliberately made to make shooting through the gate impossible. On the city side is the statue of the city maiden of Enkhuizen.De Koepoort
